GTA4 on the other hand does not rely on such fan service.

I disagree. GTA has its fan base, just like every other series of games. Thats a big reason why developers keep making games in a series, they know that their strong fan base will make it profitable. Think about it, what portion of people who reserved GTA4 played previous installments of GTA? I don't know for sure, but I would expect a lot of them.

Its clear that the 360/PS3 targets a different gamer than Wii. Also, some people have both systems, like a Wii and a 360. So hypothetically, if GTA4 came out on Wii, would it even sell? 1) Is GTA4 a game that the general population of Wii owners would buy? 2) If people have both a Wii and a 360/PS3, wouldn't they have already bought GTA4 instead of waiting for Wii? Although this topic is a little about 360/PS3/Wii comparison, I don't feel like it should go into system wars because I'm strictly posing the question on whether people would even buy it for the wii, not which system is better. Will GTA4 even come out for Wii, I highly doubt it. So why am I even post this topic...?

one thing that confuses me is in the video review the guy specifically said that GTA4 wasn't perfect. 1) poor ai 2) graphics not the best 3) The added features really didn't affet gameplay much, except the cell phone. so why did GTA4 get a "perfect" 10? I could definately understand a 9.5.

i take it you havent seen japanese games before (think of it this way, there are games out there where all it is a different backgrounds for your tv. thats it)icarus212001
That's part of my point. If a developer can make profit doing something simple, they're not going to put the time into making great enhancements. Games like that are part of the pop crazy fad genre, like GH add a few songs and make a new game or like 5bazillion DBZ games. There is a fan base that will buy the newest edition of a game no matter how simple the changes are. Not that there is anything wrong with that, its supply and demand economics. But I wouldn't expected Okami to fall into that category. I would say its more along the lines of the Zelda series where if they tried to make a great sequels, they could. Nintendo knows that the next Zelda game will be a hit, so they're going to put the time and effort into it to make it great to keep people coming back for more.

Nintendo doesn't have to buy the rights to Okami in order for their to be sequels. If Capcom has the rights, why can't they make sequels? The developer doesn't matter too too much. The important thing is that the story be immersive and in depth. As long as any developer puts the time and effort into developing the characters, the gameplay, the art style, etc, I'm sure that a sequel could be just as good as the first. The problem I see with the 'time and effort' is that a developer won't usually put that stuff into a game if they don't see a profit. Which would highly depend on the success of this game.

Do you think there will ever be sequels? Perhaps turning Okami into a series of games, like LoZ?

They said that they're pushing for the engine to run on Wii at 60FPS.manicfoot
High FPS does not equal High Rez Graphics If they're going to push the 60fps, they may only be able to do that by decreasing the detail of the 3d models, reducing the number of items/objecter/vertices, etc...but this is all speculation.

Will graphics on wii ever be as good as 360/PS3? Not a chance. However, I think this tech demo's graphics were pretty good. But this was just a tech demo so I'm scheptical that the game will actually look and play like that. With more characters, items, and such I would imagine that the frame rate would go way down if they keep things that high resolution. But honestly, graphics don't mean much to me. I'm more interested in the story and gameplay.

LoZ has some RPG elements too it, such as quests. But really its an adventure game. "Zelda 2: Adventure of Link" back on the NES was a truer RPG than most zelda games because it used experience points.

No, don't say "correct"! That would end this thread.

You're supposed to say "You're an idiot! It will be Super Mario Taco" or something.
